As alluded to in a prior post, the second of two Austrian light infantry battalions marches off from the painting desk. This baker's dozen of light infantry musters out as the 3rd Am Ende Light Infantry Battalion. Like the 4th Bach before, figures are AB Miniatures.
The 3rd Am Ende is a "German" battalion so identified by its gaiters. Again, pike-grey jacket and pants with white webbing were chosen. Having a few specialist battalions in among the sea of white coated foot soldiers adds a few spots of color to the spectacle even if that color is pike-grey.
The Montebello 1800 roster is quickly filling out. Next on the workbench are three grenz battalions. After that, attention will turn towards rounding out the French. Needed for the French are two more battalions of light infantry. Finishing those, the OB may be complete and ready for the game. The OB needs a closer look before I can claim all is on track. Still, the plan is to refight Montebello 1859 first while more troops for the 1800 battle are completed but the 1800 OB may be finished before I begin the 1859 game. The game table is covered in northern Italian landscape and completely consumes my 12' x 6' table. A few photos will better illustrate the geographical situation. I will work on that this weekend.
